2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 tablespoon pink peppercorns, coarsely crushed
Sea salt

About 12-16 large sea scallops, depending on the number of courses you serve (3-4 per person), tough ligament removed from side of each if necessary
